Witness reports Bigfoot sighting in California

What did the man see that night ? Image Credit: Steve Bexter / Pexels
Rick Bates had been driving along Highway 101 near Garberville when he noticed something very unusual.
The encounter, which took place on January 23rd, occurred between Benbow Inn and Richardson Grove and was later submitted to the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO).

"The road makes a few turns and the speed limit drops in the area," Bates wrote. "As I rounded a sweeping right hand turn I saw a figure on the south bound shoulder of the highway."

"I was the only vehicle in the area about 8:15 PM. My speed was about 45-50 MPH as I passed the figure. The figure was laying on the shoulder of the road on its right side."

"I estimated the height to be about 7'. I was looking at the creature's back and noticed it had broad shoulders and was thick torso shape. While the shape similar to a human it was not human."
"I could see muscular features in its glutes and a head on the shoulders that was somewhat tapered toward the top and being held off the ground. It's hair was a chocolate brown and very course. The hair was not fur like of a bear at all."

"I turned around a distance past the spot and returned to where I had seen it. No other vehicles had gone north or south from the time I saw the creature to the time I returned to its location (2 minutes estimate). When I got to the spot where I had seen it, the creature it was gone."

A follow-up call with the witness revealed that he was a veteran law enforcement officer who had driven the route numerous times.

He remained adamant that the creature was shaped like a man but covered in thick hair.

As things stand, no conclusive explanation for the sighting has been found.

Could have been this lass! She could be 7’ tall, has hair which could be chocolate brown and course, and solid glutes. Not an overly thick torso though...

I feel like he would have spotted those details.

That is a lot of details to remember indeed and I can't even remember what I had for lunch yesterday... Maybe if my lunch was a huge bipedal hairy creature I could rememeber it easily!  All jokes aside, it's a pretty solid recollection of something he saw for a few seconds in the dark. I know when I see a hare or something similar, I only know that it's a hare because I know that hares are what I can see driving in that particular area. If it were something not expected, I could not see or remember all those details.

  This is a case where I would surely consider MIAMS (man in a monkey suite) to be a most reasonable guesstimate. The reason..? A MIAMS would do this to get attention (BF store owner?). But a BigFoot.. why would a BF lie on the side of the highway?    ugh, normally, yes. But in panic situations... don't bet on how clearly the mind can rethink such a situation. It's like time slowed down and you recall everything in great detail, depending on the severity.    Anyway, I see no red meat here for the True Sceptics, save the per usual stone throwing, laughing etc.

I would remember every detail of that cryptid, even when passing by at 80 miles per hour!

I would like for this to be revisited and see how his story changes.

Is this just a story?

  Yeah, matt moneytaker being involved after the fact aside the story doesnt wash, in that situation he got a quick glance no way to get all those details which just sounds like embelishments to me, If i asked you to make up a story in details of the unicorn that you saw on the side of the road you could do that too.

there wasn't enough there to change. And what do you think of this guy not looking for footprints... hmmmm. One of the more disappointing cases I've seen.

Its weak because he made it up.

There are several red flags when a "report" like this is made. As a former investigator, I would like to call the person back in and have them recall the story and see how many details change or if any exaggerations are created.
